What is the role of mediation in uncontested divorce?

On Behalf of | Jun 27, 2019 | Divorce |

Ohio couples who are seeking to divorce may wonder if they are eligible for uncontested divorce. While this type of divorce holds many benefits, it can also be fairly difficult for couples to achieve for various reasons.

As FindLaw states, uncontested divorce involves not only agreeing with your spouse on the notion of divorce in the first place, but also on a number of basic divorce elements. These can involve things like child support or custody matters, spousal support, and property division.

As you can tell, these are all hotly debated topics. Being able to reach an agreement on even one of them can be a difficult task. Agreeing on all four can be even more of a struggle, and due to the nature of divorce at its core, it can be all too easy for tempers to rise and disagreements to occur.

This is where divorce mediation can come in. If you have a third party mediator, you have someone who can provide an opinion that is unbiased, not favoring any particular side or holding any hidden intentions. Taking the advice of a mediator into consideration can allow you and your spouse to come to agreements on things you may have previously been unable to see eye-to-eye on.

Are you in a situation in which you would like to qualify for an uncontested divorce but are unable to make every compromise on your own? If so, a mediator or third-party navigation person or team may be the option you are looking for.
